I use a Frankfort wet tumbler (works AWESOME by the way) and I want to clean the wife's brass (stop laughing I said BRASS) but its in two lots so I do not want to mix them. Any ideas on how I can clean it all without having to do 2 loads???
I was thinking of a pair of nylons (STOP IT, I now you are laughing again but I was cheap painter by trade and the wife's old nylons strained paint great) but I figure they'd fall apart in a tumbler, maybe a sock, some kind of mesh bag (but what kind & where do I get it), etc.???

Ladies have a little mesh bag to wash their unmentionables in. Perhaps that would work for you.

The mesh bag is used when laundering delicate under clothes to protect them from damage the washing machine might cause.

For me it would be simple. I have three tumblers and yes at time all three
are going. Might be .35 Whelen in one, .30-06 in another and .223 in the
third. Tumblers ain't that expensive but my time is.

Paul, poor folk like me can;t do that (well I could but I'd rather buy other things, LOL). Anyway, i used a mesh undies bag that cost me under $3.00 for 3 of them at Wal-mart, worked awesome too!   And bonus points, the wife thought it was romantic too.

Believe me there are worse things to cause
red face issues with stuff made for
females mixed with reloading ammo.

Finally got my woman who reloads her own
and is possibly more of a gun nut then I
am from embarrassing me with her method of
making powder drops from her press mounted
powder measure more consistent. It
involves a particular item that takes
batteries duct taped to the side of her
press. Finally got her to duct tape a
piece of cardboard over the top of it to
disguise it's shape so it ain't so obvious
what it is.

Well, I didn't buy them all at the same time. Bought one, added then
added another later on, then one more. Two Lyman's and a Dillon. I do
larges batches of brass and for example when I did almost 700 rounds
of .270 brass, all Remington, the Lymans got 200 each and the Dillon
the rest. Put them in about 4 in the afternoon and took them out about
9 the next morning, all lookin' good.

Yeah I still have my RCBS tumbler too but that Frankfort Wet tumbler is beyond perfect and easier to use AND NO LITTLE CORN chucks running around my house now, LOL. It really holds a lot too. I'd sell my tumbler but I can still a use for it now and a then for a quickie clean or to mix pints of paint ;-)
